Converse reveals KA-One Vulc & skateboarding footwear line

02
Jul '12
Converse Inc. announces its Fall 2012 skateboarding footwear collection with the addition of Converse Skate Ambassador Kenny Anderson’s latest signature KA-One Vulc shoe and updated KA-One colorways.

New styles from the Converse Form and Function Collection strip down classic Converse models to their most simple form, creating footwear that truly performs for today’s skateboarders.

KA-ONE VULC

Converse Skate Ambassador Kenny Anderson’s KA-One signature shoe returns this season with an update in the form of the KA-One Vulc. The KA-One Vulc features Converse Engineered for Destruction technology, including abrasion resistant suede, a specially developed Converse molded OrthoLite Sockliner for long-lasting cushion that doesn’t compromise board feel, and the iconic Converse All Star traction rubber vulcanized sole.

Anderson personally put these innovations to the test in a series of short films titled “KA-One Vulc: Engineered for Destruction”.  From L.A. to Vegas, the KA-One Vulc withstands the ultimate wear test with Kenny’s relentless hours on his skateboard to Kenny’s daring attempts to ‘destruct’ the shoe. A true testament to Converse’s Engineered for Destruction technology, the KA-One Vulc is available in suede in black/white and lunar rock/varsity red/black.
